I could potentially put in my application NOW and get LOR in before PCOMs deadline of Feb 1. I am ready. Spoke with undergrad pre-med advisor today and she will not work with me since she thinks it is too late and wants me to take MCAT again in April (first time in 2002 got a 21). Then she will put my packet together this summer and thinks I will be a strong candidate. Also she would have me get 4 science teacher recommendations and 1-4 non-science teacher recs. Is this not totally excessive?? Can I not just get my science advisor, spanish advisor, master level prof letter, my current MD boss, a DO letter....seal 'er up and say a prayer??? Or should I take the advise of the advisor??
